Greatest Disco Songs


The Top Ten

1 Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees

This should be number one.

Whoever says anything else needs to worry about stayin alive

In the 30s it was bing crosby, 40s frank Sinatra, 50s Elvis, 60s beatles, 70s bee gees, 80s hall and oats

Absolutely best disco song - mmtennis07

2 I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor


it is the only good one

The best disco song for me. Has been my number 1 for the past 24 years.

I will survive will survive for another century. That sing is awesome. Gotta love it.

3 Dancing Queen - ABBA

Very good song

Disco doesn't mean bad... I'm going to turn my house into a public disco and repeat every song by ABBA until I reach my deathbed!

Great song. But ABBA were never a disco band as some annoyingly describe them. They experimented with their sound to mirror the trends of the time but always did it with their distinctive Nordic twist. Upbeat melodies with underlying melancholy.

Amazing song love it all time favourite! Always been there for me to laugh and sing to best song ever published'!

4 I Feel Love - Donna Summer

I remember dancing to this at the clubs and the floor would be jam packed. A happier time for many - for sure.

Donna Summer is the Disco Queen as Michael Jackson was King of POP

This song now going on 35 years old, is STILL years ahead of itself! This classic defines excellent club/disco/dance music! The fact that it is performed by The Queen Of Disco, makes "I Feel Love", the obvious winner of this category!

The queen of disco with a monster of a track. A Moroder innovative timeless classic that refuses to age. Number 1 for me!

5 Disco Inferno - Trammps

"Burn baby burn" Ohh... This is so great to dance to, even if you have more left feet than a Lost Property cupboard. - Britgirl

The song that (I think) started the whole thing... Ingenious! And long, not to mention.

The 12 inch version remind me of the full Discotheque and people dancing. And that is awesome!

The full-length version is great - puts you in a trance

6 Get Lucky - Daft Punk

This is 2013 disco. like it or not. Yes we do know what disco is. every era has its version.

This is not disco. It's 2013 dance music. To be put on this list it must come from the disco era. I like the song but it's not disco.

DO the kids of today not know what disco is? It actually requires real instruments, and robbie williams shouldn't be on here either! This list is for seventies and early eighties ONLY!

You wanna dance listening to this one!

9 Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2 - Pink Floyd

The Beatles went from Love Me Do to A Day In The Life in just three years, and Pink Floyd went from Astronomy Domine to this in roughly ten.

NOT in a trillion years could this ever be a disco song.

Never knew it was considered disco?

It's a Disco song because it has a Disco beat to it but it's also a Progressive Rock song - christangrant

12 Le Freak - Chic

Simply amazing - jay_rh

It's got an awesome beat! I don't get why more people vote for it! I will survive is ok... but its not as good as Le Freak!

The music, the harmony, and the strong "funk" rhythm, all came together to create an unforgettable sound!

Yeah, this is disco. Kinda cool. Make you wanna dance along with it.

13 Holiday - Madonna

Are you kidding me? Guys, educate yourself - this song has many disco elements! And what? Disco didn't exist in the 80's? Some people have NO IDEA what they write

Not from the disco era at all.

Great song, but not disco!

Its 80's, disco is 70's..

16 Hung Up - Madonna

Listen youngsters this is a disco list, songs from the actual disco era. Why are children even looking at this list? It's not a list for them unless they truly like the disco era and have actually listened to music from the time period. Otherwise put modern dance songs on another list and stop messing the list up. Thank You!

For those of us who were there for the disco era are putting classic disco songs on this list. This is from last year. Maybe I missed something?

It is the best Disco song I've ever heard... Please hear it and then vote for the best.. I know you would Love it. The Queen Madonna Rocks

Oh My God.. Can't believe it's not in the list.. I Mean Haven't you listened it?

17 Heart of Glass - Blondie

Heart of Glass is the best song I've ever heard. Debbie Harry's voice is that of a siren in this song. This song, and Blondie have had a profound effect on my life. Blondie fans know the true feeling of obsession!

28 Y.M.C.A. - Village People

I agree with the others! There are songs that are not even disco songs placing higher. What gives? To Many youngsters who have no real connection to disco. Disco was from about 73 - 82 and that's pushing it. Anything certainly from the late 80's to today are not disco songs. This should be way higher.

How can this not be in the top ten... It is still incredibly popular with all ages

Greatest disco song of all time.Y.M.C.A. dance still being done more than 35 years later. What other disco song can claim that?

Oh my God, these kids are clueless... I remember seeing all of Studio dancing to this.
